    Is this for homework? What do you think? While AN is happy to help with homework questions and clarification, we will not do the work for you. Show us what you have completed so far, and we can assist from there.

    The pre-nursing student and nursing student forums are a wealth of information; have a look at some of the stickies or use the search bar (visible after clicking on the magnifying glass in the upper right corner) to search for previous threads particular to diverticulitis and pathophysiology.

    Other places to look for information would be reputable medical websites, such as the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, etc.

    Another reputable website is the national institute of diabetes and digestive and kidney disease. Also, if you are a visual learner and retain information better when you supplment text with videos, youtube has colonscopy procedures that show diverticulitis and diverticulosis.
